Ok install this package that I ripped off of Ubuntu and try the code above Smile
I'm not in 2.14X right now so I couldn't compile it, so this is the next best way, Should install without any missing deps.

Dave,
the purpose pf keeping all puppy files in a folder is to keep other puppies series two from colliding on root, or simply to keep things neat away from root as much as possible.

Yes, I do have other p2 series on same partition, like p213, puppeez and cupup [217], teenpup [214], expand [215] and lhp [215]. The last three are with all files in their own folders, using precisely the p214R boot params to boot them from there.

Incidentally, if you use two puppies with same number but differently named in the root of the same partition, say pup_215.sfs [p215ce] and lhp_215sfs, then booting one will automatically mount the other. It will also make available most applications from the other, ie those that do not collide with files of the same name in the two puppies. This may or may not be desirable.

Say you have a slim 'p214 fatfree' version named pup_214.sfs, and teenpup2008 named teen_214.sfs in the root of the same partition. They can coexist because they are differently named. Booting p214ff is fast, and once up it mounts teenpup and integrates most of its applications. In this way you could have several p214 flavours booting all from one basic slim p214, with a separate small save file for each flavour. But some applications may not work properly in this way, and I mainly use it for testing purposes [and when I feel like playing with older puppies].

Of course, this is the same as re-mastering a puplet and splitting it into the base p_xxx.sfs and all applications in an additional .sfs file. With a big distro like teenpup it's not so simple [a lot of dependencies etc] and takes time. Doing it as above you simply use the files that are already available.

Hi ttuuxxx you posted early a solution for Xorg problems, adding this to xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Module"
        Load    "dbe"
        Load    "extmod"
EndSection


This code solve the SHADE error, but the Module section was moved by Dougal to xorgwizard as you pointed in that comment.

Then I had a some time this morning and started to review Xorgwizard code, seems that Dougal added a Kirk section code where it checks for Synapctis devices and then add the module section, but actually never add the module section into xorg.conf file in other code place from xorgwizard and I don´t have a Sinaptics devices...

Well, I added this section into Xorgwizard 2.14x4 and now I don´t have any Xorg problems:

Code:

#Clarf SHARP fix
NEW_MODULE="
Section \"Module\"
            Load \"extmod\"
EndSection
"
echo "$NEW_MODULE" >> /etc/X11/xorg.conf


This code just add the missed section to xorg.conf each time xorgwizard runs, I made some test and it works fine.

If you want to review kirks code (sure MinHundHettePerro want to ckeck it too) it´s in lines 925 to 1020 from /usr/sbin/xorgwizard, I added the new code after this lines.

Greetings,

Works for me. I also find reducing the DejaVu font, size 12 down to 11 improves the look slightly although I couldn't find the refresh entry.

Hi guys,

Sorry if it has been reported already but it doesn't shutdown with version 5 and 6 (didn't try earlier versions). Gracefully, there is no problem if I use Xvesa instead of Xorg, so it's a Xorg problem.
The look is beautiful(great set of icons and background), firefox 3.5 works great and I installed abiword 2.7.6 (I think it should replace 2.4.5). In the meantime, I'm still using 4.2tuxxxv2 (great stuff).

Keep up the good work. Many thanks.

Ah!, I see, very crafty, you've added text to the refresh.ppm icon. & there was me looking for a text file. Wink

Here's my contribution to mut.
1 added MinHundHettePerro's 'squashed text' fix
2 changed font size 12 to 11
3 changed text colour for cd 'close' button
4 increased initial opening height from 280 to 360 ( in geany line 1252 of mut.tcl, if you'd like your own setting)
5 doctored ttuuxxx's refresh icon (just blued out the border & background)
6 replaced the puppy logo icon with one to match the background. Much easier & better than interfering with the script. I found the logo didn't go well with the scroll bar. BTW it's not as big as it appears in the folder.

Download & unpack the tar.gz. In /usr/lib/mut replace mut.tcl & icons in the icon folder.
Doing this manually means you can rename or move your current files so they don't get overwritten.

Greetings!

ttuuxxx, any chance of a pdf-viewer, other than ghostview, e.g. epdfview/foxview (of course without ditching ghostview, which is needed)? Is there still any room left Smile?

cheers/

Thanks For that, I'll use it in the next release:) I might not use your new refresh Icon, because well all the clickables have a box with text in it and then you tossed that, lol I kind of like it unified, And ditching the puppy logo, well I did find it silly that it scrolled up and didn't stay put, unless if someone can figure out how to keep the logo from moving, I'll toss it Smile
I could always just remove the refresh image and change it for the puppy logo with the refresh box under it the way it was? It does say refresh, that could be enough, what do you all think?

That was one of the first things I did when I started this revission, before I started this thread I spent around 2 days trying to get another pdf viewer working properly, The problem is that other pdf viewers use libpoppler4 which is about 750kb compressed then you add epfview, I actually tried about 10 different ones try to get the package small, I might try it again later on since so much has been updated it might be a lot easier, before it needed lots of extra deps, now that mostly everything it needs has been upgraded, I might be able to make a package around the 800kb compressed.
